Bio

I am a undergraduate student in the Florida International University in the Quantifying Biology in the Classroom (QBIC) program. I am interested in understanding how olfactory receptors enable mosquitoes to find their plant and human hosts.

Project

I am currently developing tools to manipulate Aedes aegypti olfactory receptor neurons to reveal new aspects of mosquito host detection. She is also exploring transcriptomics.
